    1. Until GR friend Henry Le Nav recently rated and commented on David Reuben's EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SEX: BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK, this work hung out in the "cold storage" unit of my memories. The only way in which my familiarity with it would show up was in some variation of Sol Weinstein's mockery of Reuben's book: EVERYTHING YOU NEVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SEX*: *BUT I'LL TELL YOU ANYWAY. No surprise here -- I have a tendency to share boring information (i.e not about sex) tha [...]

    2. This was fairly forward thinking for its day for some things like masturbation: "The only thing harmful about masturbation is the guilt drummed into children." It also appears to support greater access to abortions for pregnant women and discusses many varieties of birth control.But it's take on homosexuality is appalling. Here are a few of the statements in the book:"One of the main features of homosexuality is promiscuityThe homosexual must constantly search for the one man, the one penis, the [...]

    3. Oh, where to begin with this heap of libelous garbage?I'll be reviewing the first edition of the book because it was the one I snatched up as a teenager after finding it in the free section of a used bookstore. As an asexual young person eager to learn about the obsession that the other ninety-nine percent of the human population harbored, I thought that Reuben's well-known bestseller would serve its promised purpose. The introduction asserted that no one could "live up to his human potential" w [...]

    4. I rated this book for the humor value. I read the thing cover to cover the day I got it. Reuben has some awesomely misinformed sections in it. He takes a stance on homosexuality as being sexually depraved and his descriptions of how gay men act had me cracking up. His suggestion for the best spermicidal douche was unbearably funny. Some of what he says rings true, but mostly it is an amusing glance into society's view on the topic in the late sixties. Do not read it to educate yourself about all [...]

    5. Woody Allen se la voló con ésta cinta. Es una comedia brillante, absolutamente imprescindible, no sólo en la filmografía del cineasta neoyorquino, sino en la historia de la comedia estadounidense. De chusca inteligencia, Woody Allen nos muestra una serie de… episodios, o sketches, donde se reúnen varias de las dudas más básicas de la sexualidad humana, planteadas en maneras irónicas, situaciones satíricas y diálogos geniales. Yo no sabía que Woody Allen se había basado realmente en [...]

    6. The worst "factual" book ever. Nothing in it is ever cited as an actual study but ridiculous scenarios are given and they make for some good entertainment. Written in the 60's, it's dated and full of racist and sexist stereotypes which are funny if you aren't overly serious. It preaches about the usage of Coca Cola as the best form of birth control and how STD's are spread to the mayor's daughter from men of color. This flea market find sparked a fascination with collecting books that contain so [...]

    7. I found this in my parent's bedroom when I was 14 years old. I read it in secret, and replaced it where I had found it.I often thought afterward, that it was left out in the open for a reason :} It opened up a world that I ddin't even know existed, and answered questions about a subject that noone ever really sat down and explained to me. Reading it at that age was probably NOT the most healthy thing that could have happened. Teenage hormones and urges were just starting to hit and the knowledge [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this down-to-earth, medically and emotionally accurate exploration of sex, the greatest activity in the history of the world. The only chapter I didn't appreciate was the one on male homosexuality. It was outdated and just silly at points. For instance, it read that no one really knows why the gays do what they do. It implied that they simply choose that lifestyle. No, it's not genetic. No, it's not emotional. What poppycock.Otherwise, this was an excellent read. I really liked [...]

    9. You don't want to know how I acquired this book. That being said, I do have some things to say about it. It is very informative when it comes to matters of anatomy and seems to be inclined, like so much of the work done by psychologists in the sixties, to want to free heterosexual couples from the constraints of imposed chastity and prudishness. However, if you are gay, lesbian, transexual, bi or even remotely questioning, or even if you have proclivities that may be considered outside the norm, [...]

    10. I am happy to say that of the three or four books I've ever thrown out in my life because of hideous content (and not because of bad koolaid stains or a puppy chewing it beyond legibility), two have been copies of this book. And one was not mine. I realize now that the other person may have had it as an example of what stupid things people can say when they pretend they know a topic they know little about, but at the time, I did not think it through. And, yes, I felt guilty throwing away someone [...]

    11. When this book first came out it was a must read for our gang working at the mall cafe. As teenagers it was a wonder,no one had told us this stuff before, and little was available in this contemporary format - just buyinga book at a bookstore. I was reading it on break by the mall fountain, hunkereddown so the cover wouldn't be embarrassing. An oldergirl stopped (20ish) she asked me what are you reading?you are so intent. When I showed her the book shegot a big laugh out it!

    12. I got this book at Op House for 20 cents. It's for my vintage sex-ed collection! I usually enjoy reading out-of-date, inaccurate books about sex. But this one was too homophobic and misogynistic to be truly entertaining. I would say it's an interesting cultural relic, but sadly I think there are a lot of people walking around who believe the horrible things in this book, and we are all suffering for it.

    13. I was never given, "The Talk" but instead I was given "The Book". First it was the Time Life, Life Cycle Library, then I grabbed this when Walt and Steph were done with it and read it cover to cover. Kind of dry, but informative, and I was just hungry enough for accurate info on the subject at the time that I read it nearly all at once.

    14. I don't remember anything inside this book, but I do have a story about it that still makes me smile decades after the fact. My best friend's family was moving, and her father found this book under her bed. She was so embarrassed, but all he did was ask if she had learned anything! This was the go-to book of my generation. We didn't have Internet!

    15. Yep,found this book in my brother's room. Learned lots of things that didn't makes sense until I was older. Some images still haunt me but at least it made thinking and questioning about sex less taboo. Not a great informational book because of all the misinformation. Still, it shaped a lot of young lives back when it came out.

    16. My mother literally blew her top when she found out I was reading this book at the age of just turned 18! She was apparently typical mother who wouldn't dream of uttering the word sex, never mind talking about it!! I found it to be very informative and answered most all my questions except one ( I can't remember what that question was)

    17. Got this book from my father when I was 13, to substitute "the talk." Ridiculously obsolete, features less research and informative text and more a collection of cartoonish anecdotes from caricatured people. Barely enough to even be a relic of its time; in the height of the sexual revolution, this book doesn't do much justice to human sexuality.

    18. Read this right when it initially was published. Fortunately, I was able to get copies of Kinsey and Masters and Johnson long before. David Reuben may have bought some knowledge to a society that had a lot of hang ups about sex and sexuality but he was not to kind to the Gay community. They are pretty much referred to as freaks.

    19. very informative. found this in my grandfather's bookshelf when i had nothing better to do. i was in highschool then. so even before sex education i knew that rhythm method is not that effective because a woman's cycle changes, and so is withdrawal. i learned a lot about the changes i my body was going thru and really helped me to deal with it.

    20. No one should take this book seriously anymore because it is so outdated. So much has changed in modern sexuality that hardly any of what the author claims is true these days. Still an interesting read.

    21. Fun to read, mainly due to its dated 'facts' and outrageous claims. I especially enjoyed the small section where lesbian is equated with prostitute and the amount of female patients bursting into tears and messing up their makeup when divulging delicate issues was priceless.


    23. The first book I ever read about sex. I used to steal it from my big brother's room when I was a high schooler and read it cover to cover a couple of time. I was a (book) expert at 17.

    24. Easy to read, contains a lot of information you may have not known about sex - regarding menopause, impotence, masturbation, STDs - you're bound to learn many new things.

    25. Good book, but now outdated (it was written in 1969). I'm thankful that a book like this can help answer important questions but it is, at best, an introduction for the curious.

    26. I loved this book. Answered all of my questions about sex, and maintained a witty voice. This book should be used for Sexual Education in our school systems.

    27. I don't think this book aged well. It seems very quaint. I find The Guide to Getting it On more fun and more informative.
